I have a midterm tomorrow, yet here I am writing a bloody blog entry. I am aware that this may be my own way of sabotaging the outcome of the test, but I digress. I have essentially given up on doing well. However, that’s not why I am writing this blog.
I saw an interesting article in the New York Times today about people breaking up with others based on the lack of shared literary taste or even sharing the love of reading. According to this article, some bookworm snobs have broken up with people based on certain books they did not read or depending on the characters they sided with in a novel.
As a book lover I totally understand the beauty in sharing such a fantastic hobby with your partner. However, some people like to do things separately from their mates, I call them the “compartmentalizers.” It is often fine for compartmentalizers if they do not have major things in common with their partners. I think it all boils down to what you think encompasses a good relationship. An interesting article just the same.
